Fort San Pedro

Fort San Pedro Fuerza de San Pedro is a military defense structure built by the Spanish and locals of Cebu under Miguel Lopez de Legazpi’s (Spanish conquistador) command, but the date of the construction wasn’t sure.  There were claims that Jesuit Antonio Campioni built the fort in 1630.  But, there were a lot of major renovations in the 19th century for the structural improvements of Cebu.

Its main purpose is the same as Fort Santiago in Manila – it was used to repulse the Muslim raiders. It served as a strong wall and protected the Filipino revolutionaries.  There were major renovations done in this site in 19th century as part of the structural improvements of Cebu City.
